excited, s.e.? >> i'm thrilled. the thrill is gone after four years. president obama about to change the tone in washington. unfortunately, d.c. is still tone deaf. >> i'm steve kornacki. we are taking you through our favorite inauguration moments today and since the footage of 1864 is a bit grainy, i go with something slightly more contemporary. >> i'm krystal ball, this is another historic event. what president's past, present and future can learn from it. >>> t-minus two days until president obama makes history again. on sunday, he'll be sworn in for a second term in the highest office in the land. but did you know obama will become the second president ever to take the oath of office four times? yeah. that's right. steve kornacki told me that. in 2009, he took it twice after chief justice roberts botched it the first time. good job, john. the president will again the lay hand on the bible, january 20th required by the constitution but since it's a sunday, the parades, balls and public swearing in, the fourth oath, pushed until monday the mlk holiday. such poetic justice, that. do
in the next few years donald trump succeeds in proving that obama's birth certificate's a fraud, how will that affect the ability to govern the country? no, no. i guess what i'm kind of struck by is we're talking about now few days away from the second inauguration, what are the big themes to define the obama term and seems to me maybe more than we have seen in the recent past, this second term really, the basic contours of the second term set in place. it is this fight over what the safety net is, what the balance between spending cuts and revenue increases should be in terms of dealing with the deficit. that's been the battle that's waged since early 2011 and republicans grabbed control of the house. they have the house for two years and feels like more of a ceremonial second inaugural than usual. >> yeah. and i think he's going to have a very tough -- toure was right saying i have a limited idea of how much to get done in this term. lbj in 1965 had had the largest landslide in history, more democrats in congress than any other time in the 20th century except for roosevelt and told
of partisan rhetoric right now, but in four years from now, eight years from now president obama is going to go down as having an incredibly effective presidency in terms of legislation and moving the ball forward on a number of social issues. we haven't even talked about gay marriage, don't ask don't tell. >> oddly enough, he did what many presidents actually do in their second term. he did it in his first. so many presidents would have said, well, health care, that's going to be so difficult, i'm going to save it for year five after i'm safely re-elected. did he the contrarian thing. he got it done in the first two years, so, oddly enough, some of the old rules really don't apply. >> harold, in terms of the keeping o.f.a. active, although under a slightly different name, karl rove had nothing positive to say about that, unsurprisingly. let's play that. >> go figure. >> let's not pass over this ethics issue. for example, on the inaugural committee we now know the inaugural committee is collecting information about everybody who is attending the inaugural and says they will give it over t
't you failing the country, say the insurgents? the answer, the country chose obama, he gets four years. want to save the republic? win the next election. liz, if charles krauthammer recommending the gop be less intransigent, do you think inside those meetings going on this weekend there will be some message, some form of that message? >> look, i think there's an amazing amount of soul searching going on within the republican party right now. and it's a troubled time for the party because there is no single standard bearer. it's not as if there's one leader who is charting a course and saying, yes, we're going to compromise or no, we're not. and -- and so, you know, the fact remains in the last two national elections presidential elections, the republicans lost. so they've got to figure out a way to listen to those voters who, you know, decide close elections. it's the middle of america. and the middle of america has said repeatedly, get something done. we'll see if the republicans listen. >> and alex, you know, they've brought in a pollster this weekend, they want to talk about, for ex
the obamas moved in four years ago and the white house's value peaked at just under $ 00 million in july 2006. given that that was the top of the property boom, pretty impressive that we're not that far off. we want to know, how much do you think the white house is really worth? join the conversation here on "worldwide exchange." get in touch with us, entertain me while ross is away. tweet us, @cnbcwex or @kelly evans. >>> next, u.s. planes will reportedly land in -- i'm sorry, u.s. planes have erroredly landed in algeria as hostage takers remain holed up in a gas complex. we will bring you the latest as we come back. >>> let's take a look at how european equities are right now. advancers generally outpacing decliners. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. >>> welcome b
.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it was a blunt and chilling confession to the world. lance armstrong admitting unequivocally to oprah winfrey th
of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th
explosion marked the worst coal mining disaster in 40 years. a new investigation says the obama administration cast aside the results of a probe into the effects of gas drilling on drinking water following pressure from the drilling company. the associated press reports the environmental protection agency issued an emergency order in 2010 saying a texas well saturated with flammable methane posed an immediate risk to homeowners. regulators had scientific evidence against the driller, range resources, but backed down after the company threatened not to operate the national study on the drilling process known as fracking. the threats prompted the agency to set aside their investigation, which found drilling could in fact have contaminated the water. one of the affected homeowners said his drinking water is so laced with methane that he can set it on fire. steve lipsky said -- a u.s. soldier accused of massacring 16 afghan civilians in march has been ordered to undergo a sanity review before his lawyers can wage a defense based on his mental health. staff sergeant robert bales defe
. the year rising. we are back now. i want to get your reaction, if i may, as to what is your reaction to these reports that the white house, the obama administration was cautioning the algerian government on how to respond to this hostage taking and this group of terrorists? >> i think that is probably exactly right. i think the algerians are very experienced people at fighting, and they don't give a lot of time to develop. i think it is probably very crude to say that i think the algerians value that gas production more than the people that were being held hostage. there were very worried about the plan being destroyed. i think that i why they moved right away. >> they were concerned, and i heard it in my debate. the americans and the french could do it. there was a draw fying. special forces moving. they looked very conceed that we would go in and therefore they could not absorb a politically. they went. lou: ignored by washington, european capitalists. >> what i think the algerians understood, knowing what they know about those g how this, if they don't terminate the issue very qui
on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged the obama administration would make sure that the future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house, to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regard boast inrestor programs programs progt financing. whenever there's major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. that is why i was certainly very heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a specific task force to develop responses to the tragedy at not only sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program, and included the ban on
after the 2008 election hoping that obama could make a difference. millions of americans bought into the notion that he was somehow above partisan politics. four years later we all know better. what do you think about that, escrow? >> well, look, i think -- look, the country has become very polarized -- i mean it is, that's just the way it is. and both side can take some of the blame for that. i think on the issue of guns, though, jon, what is fascinating is the increase to do something about guns has happened across party lines, even in some of the polls this morning 18% more republicans, more republicans want to do something about gun control, or are more open to some of these bigger items, like an assault weapons ban, or universal background checks. so right now the feeling about doing something is going across party lines. still more republicans are defenders of the second amendment except they don't want to see something change. jon: we'll see if anything changes in this congress and with this administration. >> we sure will, jon. jenna: new fallout over the president's hea
